Remembering in a Context of Forgetting: Hauntings and the Old Durham Road Black Pioneer Settlement
Norquay, Naomi
Canadian Social Studies, v47 n2 p127-139 2014
This paper explores the data produced from an oral history project about a Black pioneer settlement in Grey County, Ontario. Twelve area residents were interviewed and the data produced points to various community practices of both remembering and forgetting. I employ Avery Gordon's (2008) theorization of ghosts and hauntings to make sense of the gaps, silences, and contradictions that populated the interviews. The paper ends with a consideration of Roger Simon's (2000, 2005) plea for a practice of remembrance that is both ethical and pedagogical.
